For the first time ever, the 35-year-old reality star opened up about her traumatic robbery during last night’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. After describing the men putting a gun up to her head and fearing that they were going to rape her, she admitted to thinking about her older sister, Kourtney Kardashian.
“I prayed that Kourtney’s going to have a normal life after she sees my dead body on the bed,” she said in a one-on-one interview.
Before the episode aired, Kim tweeted about her traumatic experience.
“Tonight’s episode is going to be very tough for me,” she wrote. “However, I thought it was important to share this story through my eyes & not in an interview where my own words could be twisted. I have always shared so much & I’m not going to hold back when this was probably one of the most life changing experiences for me.”
She continued, “I would never wish this experience upon anyone, but have learned some valuable lessons & feel so blessed to be safe home w my babies & husband. To my friends, family, and loved ones I can’t thank you enough for being there when I needed you the most. To the French police, thank you for your incredible hard work.”
During the show, Kim tweeted, “I took a tragic horrific experience and did not let it diminish me, rather grew and evolved and allowed the experience to teach me. I can say I’ve become so much better because of it… thank you for allowing me to share my story tonight.”
Before details about the robbery leaked to the public, numerous outlets insinuated that Kim made the story up or planned the event for press. However, despite previous rumors, fans proved to have her back and expressed empathy for the reality star on Twitter.
We’re glad she’s getting the support she needs. Stay strong, Kim!
